3D signal indicator no longer displays when playing 3D movie?

So this is a minor thing and not sure anyone can help. I searched Sony forums and online and stuff, but last option here.

So I have this Sony Bravia 3D tv (Sony KDL50W800C). I have the 3D signal indicator set to on, so that when a 3D signal is detected it should say "3D signal has been detected". All of a sudden, when i have a 3D movie going on it won't display. I have turned the indicator on and off several times and reset tv.

Again, it is not a huge deal, but it just stopped all of a sudden and was wondering if someone had an idea of something else i can try to get this to show when 3D signal detected.

Thanks in advance.

Why have an indicator? Shouldn't it be obvious if a 3D movie is playing?

yes, as i said, it's a minor annoyance, but it always said signal detected on bottom of screen and now it doesn't. there is a way to shut on and off, this indicator and it's on and it doesn't show. i just liked seeing it is all. OCD yes. but, i just wanted to know if there was something i can do to bring it back...

I would check source cables. Maybe there's a handshake signal not going to your tv.

I’ll check, but everything seems locked in and tight. What’s a handshake signal? Other indicators come on. Like TV volume is fixed since audio goes through sound system. Just this one indicator doesn’t come on. Watching 3D and all that fine, so player to tv connection is fine. Other than that I’m at a loss...

Cables might seem fine but I would still unplug and replug each HDMI plug that is associated with whatever device is playing 3D. Simplest and quickest first step. Just do each end one at a time. If its not each to access your HDMI cables, don't bother since everything else seems fine. Handshake signal is just like it sounds: one device sends out a signal and the other device acknowledges signal...like a handshake.

Not sure if it'll help. Just seems like something quick and easy to try first.

you're probably right and i don't want to do a factory reset again because tv has been working better than ever (knock on wood) despite it's problems, so hopefully when Venus aligns with Jupiter it will work once again...
